[applause] >> john brennan also talks about the use of drone strikes and counter-terrorism strategies since the debt of osama bin laden. from april of last year, this is just over one hour. >> i very much appreciate the opportunity to discuss president obama's counterterrorism strategy. then senator obama discussed how he would bring the war in iraq to an end and focus on the war that has to be one, the war against al qaeda, particularly in the troubled region of afghanistan and pakistan. he said we would carry on this fight while upholding the law and our values and we would work with our allies and partners wherever possible. he also made it clear we would not hesitate to use military force against terrorists who don't pose a direct threat to america. he said he had intelligence about terrorists, even as in pakistan, he would act to protect the american people. it is especially fitting we have this discuss

, this is not like your friendly saturday afternoons with 4-year-olds to talk about guns are bad. you are standing on -- standing between people who are sometimes at this moment potentially about president obama in t to be in a gunfight. >> the young men and women throughout america, we have stood in the middle of 45 conflicts in chicago. in one, a guy shot a grandmother's window, then burned her car. he said he wasn't going to listen to anybody. as an end result, the grandmother's grandsons are still alive today. that's something we caught on the front end. >> i want to bring tracy into this. i know you know one another from some of the work for many years in chicago. >> one thing that is important about what cease-fire does is addresses the violence of young men, african-american men in particular. we know gun violence is the number one source, reason for death among that age group. we also know looking at chicago in particular that the way people are connected in the communities is important. if you look at the high crime community where tio and his colleagues are working, homicide rate is high

we are live -- we are winning in afghanistan. under obama, 70% of the debt and 80% of the injuries have occurred in afghanistan. does that sound like we are winning? guest: steve used the word "tribe." talking about, "i am not the senator from israel," the problem with this language is that it's just that those with a strong strategic review -- strategic view -- i just think that is wrong. sort of painting the other side as being on thoughtful about their relationship -- i think is wrong. when the iraq war was going poorly and senator hagel said the greatest threat united states faces is between the mountains of afghanistan and pakistan -- previously opposed the surge in afghanistan. these are issues the need to be addressed. where do we think afghanistan is going to go? why did he think at one point that afghanistan was such a strategic interest? senator hagel has made a lot of statements over the years about the middle east and central asia that i think have to be addressed. israel-u.s. relationships have to be put into context. i think the caller started them. but the fact is no
